Shema Israel: 14K Yellow Gold and Black Onyx Nano-Inscribed Hamsa Necklace
14K Yellow Gold, Onyx Stone
Size of pendant: 0.7" x 0.35" / 18 x 9 mm
This stunning necklace will make a great gift to someone special! The gleaming black onyx stone has been cut into a familiar Hamsa shape, and nano-inscribed in vibrant gold. The stone is believed to connect people back to their origins and truest selves, making it the perfect gift to someone you love.
Hamsas are an ancient Middle Eastern symbol which Kabbalists believe to be the hand of Miriam protecting her little brother Moshe (Moses) while the tumultuous River Nile swept him away from his mother. It’s come to represent peace and protection, and is a favorite in Israeli and Jewish jewelry.
Polished black onyx stone overlaid with a separate 14K gold Star of David pendant. Inscribed on the stone in 24K gold letters is the Hebrew text of the basic Jewish creed: Shema Yisrael, Hashem Elokeinu, Hashem Echad (Hear, O Israel, Hashem is our God, Hashem is One) (Deuteronomy 6:4). God's name is not spelled out on the pendant, to avoid desecration.
This pendant can include a gold chain in your choice of length for an additional cost.
Please note that the chain pictured above is for illustrative purposes only and may not be similar to the 1-gram gold chain you will get (should you choose to get one).
